I am 58 years old and until 5 years ago had maintained my same weight almost consistently since I was in my early 20's (120-125 lbs, except for a few life-changing events - baby, divorce, etc.) When I hit about 53 years old I not only went into menopause with a vengeance, but also suffered a serious back injury. For my back problems the dr. gave me numerous steriod spinal injections - didn't help my back, but afterward I was told I would put on weight because of the steriods. So between the menopause and the steroids - I gained 30 pounds. My options for exercise are limited to almost nothing because of my back. i eat healthy and conservatively - but no weight loss.Invite Your Friends to Answer This Question
